Saturday is a beautification day, though today it is not at home. (Drat!) Do you ever participate in projects in your area? I love the community pride that comes with a cleanup, though wish people felt enough personal accountability that they wouldn't throw their trash around to begin with. (steps off soapbox)
Talking about community...I recently joined a new one not limited to a specific locale. It is a group of people who are passionate about supporting handmade goods and small business and building our ability to get seen by the masses. The Handmade Forum was started by a very dedicated Katie Joy and today I am celebrating her efforts and products.
Katie Joy has a great eye for fashionable, youthful pieces. I would never dream these up (I'm a stones, wire and re-purposed leather girl), but would definitely wear them or give them as gifts. Take a look...
Oh, and this piece really makes me think of Halloween and candy corn:
I am horrible at costumes, so this would be something I might cheat with and call my costume. It would also be a great addition to a modern suit or dress. Love versatile pieces!
I would encourage you to take a look at her shop and see the many other beautiful baubles and bangles there.
Alrighty...I am off to clean. Hope you all do something to support your community today. Cheers!
